6 Sustainable Pastel Looks to Wear this Easter Sunday

Dress codes for Easter can be far and wide. From your upgraded Sunday best to a light afternoon gathering, Easter encompasses most formal spring events into one day.  I have always associated the holiday with spring barbecues, frilly dresses from my childhood, and obviously church. The color scheme is often lovely Spring pastels that would just at home on a bouquet of flowers as they do on your semi color-coordinated family.

This first look mixes colors. It’s a pastel patterned look that combines some Easter friendly lilacs and turquoises. Paired with a chilly weather friendly cardigan and comfortable flats, it’s also perfect for a long day of socializing because you’re prepared for lots of environments.

There is never an occasion that neutrals aren’t acceptable. The jumpsuit is grayish/ tan, which is definitely better than nude. This color looks better on a wider range of skin tones because it doesn’t wash pale skin out as easily. Purple earrings are the main pop of color. I chose to make the pop of color by the face as an extra wash out precaution.
